It’s June 4th and your team, your town, your Philadelphia Union are atop the Eastern Conference.
I know, I can’t believe it either, but they’ve been great this year, really fun to watch, a gritty, BLUE COLLAR type of Philly team.
The video and marketing department is also on their game. Here’s a well-done piece of #content promoting this weekend’s Union/Red Bull “rivalry” game, a clip showing some guy beating the shit out of car in Center City as confused folks watch from afar:
Shout out to @edbassmaster for the assist!

The “guy” is Ed Bassmaster, who I’d never heard of until actually reading the video description, but apparently he’s a Youtube star and Philly native.
On his Wikipedia page, I learned that one of his characters is named “Girard Douche,” which made me laugh out loud. I’d hope that “Girard Douche” stands near the EL at Frankford and Girard and crosses the street at red lights.
I watched a few videos and unfortunately “Girard Douche” has nothing to do with Girard Avenue.
